This year is flying by and, even though we are more than halfway through the year and have tons of time left for major celebrity drama, some big breakups have already happened. Unfortunately, a long lasting celebrity relationship is rare but, when it comes to these couples, we thought for sure they were going to make it, or at the very least, make it for a little longer than they did. Seemingly happy relationships have fallen apart and divorce papers are being filed, leaving us all stunned that these couples have called it quits. Perhaps some will reconcile, for others that does not seem likely. Check out the 6 most shocking splits Of 2015…so far.
7. Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani
The ultimate rockstar couple Gavin Rossdale, 49, and Gwen Stefani, 45, shocked everyone with news of their divorce in early August for so many reasons. While all celebrities get dragged through the rumor mill, two A-listers in a marriage usually endure way more when it comes to media attention, however these two always seemed rock solid and happy, and in love. After 19 years together and 13 years of marriage we thought they would grow old together while raising their three children, but it was not to be, as there seemed to be issues below the surface of happiness. Whatever the reason for the split may be, everyone was definitely blind-sided and saddened by the end to what looked like an undying romance.
6. Nick Jonas and Olivia Culpo
Nick Jonas, 22, and Olivia Culpo, 23, are still very young, so the odds of them sticking it out forever were low, but it sure seemed they were headed towards marriage. For one split second, during Jonas’ performance at the 2015 Miss Universe Pageant in January, everyone, including Culpo, thought he was using the moment to propose. Luckily, the moment of him grabbing her hand while getting down on one knee passed and no ring was presented because only five months later the couple broke the whole relationship off. The pop star and former Miss Universe dated for two years and there was no sign of trouble before they split up quite suddenly, which left us shocked. After the split, Culpo used her social media to write about heartbreak and Jonas kept insisting that she is “amazing” and they “had a great, a beautiful two years together.” We all thought they were headed for a lot longer than two years.
